on ts plan, why? >> because government involved is going to be a waste. you look at other infrastructure fed ex and ups and railroads got out the way, great infrastructure, let's have the private equity involved, public-partnerships private partnerships and you get more for less. you get bloated wages and more bang for the buck by bringing in free market. >> dave: what is wrong with the free market taking the place of government boondoggles? >> for one thing it is not happening quickly enough. we have a serious problem that all of us should agree to. there are certain things like roadways that you cannot give a monopoly to a private company. >> dave: it's a public monopoly? >> don't you feel better with all of us own the government having control over the roadway than one private company. >> dave: i've seen so many of those public projects with guys sitting around. they take five times as long as private project. rick has a point on infrastructure. it is crumbling. listen to what ray lahood pitched this infrastructure plan. >> i don't think you would be turning off people in america beca

in 2003. the federal government has required the states to be more rigorous before issuing identification cards. that's why the appellant can't get a valid government identification but more peerntly i want to emphasize if this commission decides that expired identification is okay with letters you will have a standard that is really arbitrary. what is enough? it's a letter from a former supervisor? is it a balance license? what standard are we going to use? >> >> and that would be unfair to the public at a whole. >> do you have any -- >> i do and the issue is background check and you stated the primary reason it requires a valid id so you can do a background check and issue a license for fortuneteller. >> that's correct. that's one of the reasons. >> which makes infinite sense to me, so if a medical marijuana card issued by the state requires a background check to be issued wouldn't it be valid for your licensing purposes? >> that's a good question. a thorough and complete background check starts with knowing that your backgrounding the person who is applying for the permit. if th
out there, but by and large the data sets put out by city government are data sets that i think show us in a very positive way. from my perspective, it's important for us to keep on pushing data sets that allow us to deal with the sometimes imperfections in city government. to figure it out, where it is we need to take risks, we are we can be more entrepreneurial, where we can be more transparent and frank little more accountable to all of you as the residents and as our customers here in city government. and this is why i am proud tomorrow to help move forward legislation that my staff has been working closely with jay nath and mayor leon that will real i do three things. first of all, it will create a chief data officer because we need one person who is responsible and accountable for moving forward our open data agenda. secondly, we're going to require every department in the city to have a representative who is responsible for data so you can go to our transit agency, our police department, any of our 50 plus departments and know who can help you get the data that we need. thirdl

government borrows is money that isn't invested to create jobs and uncertainty created by the debt is one reason why many businesses aren't hiring. the president loves to blame the debt on president bush, but president obama created more debt in four years than his predecessor did in eight. the real cause of our debt is that our government is suspending 1 trillion dollars more than it takes in every year that's why we need a balanced budget amendment. the biggest obstacle to balancing the budget are programs where spending is locked in. one of these programs is medicare, it's especially important to me. they provided my father the care he needed to battle cancer and ultimately to die with dignity and it pays for the care my mother receives right now. i would never support any changes to medicare that would hurt seniors like my mother so anyone in favor of leaving medicare exactly the way it is right now is in favor of bankrupting it. republicans have offered a detailed and credible plan to help save medicare without hurting today's retirees. instead of playing politics with medicare when

if i provided my cell phone to city government, we can let you know if the street cleaning is going to happen tomorrow. we propose this had last year. mayor lee was supportive. we're still waiting for it to happen, idea number one. idea number two, my constituents ask me can you tell us where every single dollar in city government goes? whether it goes to an individual, nonprofit, someone providing goods and services in our city? last year i proposed an open budget application so that we could drill down and know where every single penny of city government is being spent. i want to thank our budget director who is here, our city controller. we are working on this, but we are still months away from getting the data that we need to provide this information to you. my third idea, i want to thank our rec and park department. you're going to be hearing a little bit from the director of that department, phil ginsberg about the new application they have helped us with. i'm very proud of what rec and park is doing. this is something i've been discussing with mr. ginsberg for some months now
million americans bracing to be pushed out from their health insurance. new government numbers showing that's how many people could lose their employer-based plans because of the president's health care law. so what happens to this. >> if you like your health care plan you'll be able to keep your health care plan period. >> brenda: all this as the price tag keeps growing. someone here says the number of surprises will grow, too. are they right or wrong? i'm brenda buttner and this is bulls and bears. let's get right to it. the bulls and bears this week, we've got gary b smith, jonas max ferris, john layfield along with john tobacco and steve murphy. welcome, everybody. president obama expected to tout the health care law in his state of the union on tuesday, but john, you say this law isn't doing anything, but making america sicker? >> yeah, brenda. i mean, after years, literally the last three years, barack obama's been telling americans, you won't lose your doctor, if you like your health insurance, you can keep your health insurance, now post-election, surprise! 7 million americans,

government and big business we need an accountable and efficient big government that allows small and new businesses to create middle class jobs, we don't have to raise taxes to avoid the devastating cuts to the military. republicans passed a plan that replaces these cuts with responsible spending reforms, and in order to balance our budget, the choice doesn't have to be either higher taxes or dramatic benefit cuts for those in need. instead we should grow our economy so we can create new taxpayers, not new taxes. and so, our government can afford to help those truly cannot help themselves. and the truth is, every problem can't be solved by the government. many are caused by the moral breakdown in our society. and the answer to these challenges lie primarily in our families and our faiths not our politicians. despite our differences, i know that both republicans and democrats love america, i pray we can come together and solve our problems because the choices before us could not be more important. if we can get our economy healthy again, our children will be the most prosperous americans
, the unions is to demand jobs. where do they et off with that. we have more government workers now than we a citizens in 1776 and so many have so much to do. they should be cut. unions need to take a back seat and put this country for once. >> eric: sequestration threatening spending, let's not gog go to sequestration. >> guess what. this is our country. god bless us. they are asking for more money. the debt clock over $16 trillion. this country is in trouble. the money is gone. they are asking for more, but guess what? they have a president that is willing to give them more. he is already proposing a raise for all federal workers on top of the one they are going to get in march. >> eric: is there a spending cut that a union is willing to like? >> i don't think so. you got to give them credit for what they are. they are constituency. they are only interested in themselves. everybody who goes there and lawmakers are interested in themselves. whether it's a union or another political group. you can't blame them for that. they are doing what they are supposed to do, representing their union m
the time that labour was in government, if you were in a private sector rented home and you were in receipt of housing benefits, you did not get any benefit for empty rooms. i think that is important. it is only fair we treat people in social housing the same way. the second point is that if anybody is away from home, obviously their earnings are not counted. therefore the benefits that person are likely to go up. >> mr. speaker, i look forward to explaining why her paying 25 pounds a week more from april is not a tax on her. as for his point about the private rented sector, i think he misunderstands the point of social housing. the purpose is to protect the most vulnerable. according to the government's own figures, 2/3 of the people hit are disabled. let me tell the prime minister about an e-mail i received last week. my wife is disabled, has a degenerative condition and is cared for in bed. due to her illness and my condition, i usually sleep in the spare bedroom. why is it fair for him and hundreds of thousands of others disabled people like him to be hit by the bedroom tax? >> as with
. that the economic downturn happened because our government didn't tax enough, spend enough or control enough. and therefore, as you heard tonight, his solution to virtually every problem we face is for washington to tax more, borrow more and spend more. this idea that our problems were caused by a government that was too small, it's just not true. in fact a major cause of our recent downturn was a housing crisis created by reckless government policies and the idea that more taxes and more government spending is the best way to help hard-working middle-class taxpayers that's an old idea that's failed every time it's been tried. more government isn't going to help you get ahead, it's going to hold you back. more government isn't going to create more opportunities, it's going to limit them. and more government isn't going to inspire new ideas, new businesses, and new private sector jobs. it's going to create uncertainty. because more government breeds complicated rules and laws that small businesses can't afford to follow. because more government raises taxes on employers who then pass the cost
. but is anyone listening? and can government intervention move us out of these terrible times? keynes and roosevelt met only once. each thought the other well meaning but ineffectual. however, they changed the course of the world. what did we learn from the depression? we'll investigate that with the help of economics analyst richard gill on economics usa. hard times. we've seen a lot of them over the years. 1932 and the years that followed were different. the hoover administration tried to popularize the word depression. they thought it a milder word that would soothe the american public. by 1932, hope was about gone. the depression was more than an economic problem. it was human calamity. millions went hungry, some to starvation. proud people begged on street corners asking for pennies to feed their children, for jobs that no longer existed. the economic devastation seemed total. things couldn't possibly get worse, and yet they did. over 4,000 banks failed. the value of stocks dropped from $89 billion to $15 billion. national income dropped. investment, savings, consumption-- everyt

it's the caution of our problems. the economic downturn happened because our government didn't tax enough, spend enough or control enough. therefore, as you heard tonight his solution to virtually every problem we face is for washington to tax more, borrow more and spend more. this idea that our problems were caused by a government that was too small is just not true. in fact, the major cause of our recent downturn was a housing crisis created by reckless government policies. the idea that more taxes and more government spending is the best way to help hard working middle-class taxpayers, that is amp old idea that has failed every time it has been tried. no government is going to help you get ahead, it is going told you back. more government is not going to create more opportunities, it's going limit them and it won't inspire new ideas and new private sector jobs. it's going to create more uncertainty. because it breeds complicated rules and laws that small businesses can't afford to poll because more government raises taxes on employers who pass the costs on to their employees to

industry, automobile industry, the public education and literally they're bankrupting government as well. they're only growing in government. unions account for about 36% of government workers. only 6% in the private work force. i tell you, the nerve of richard trumka and the unions to demand jobs. where do they get off with that? we have more government workers now than we had citizens of the countries founded in 1776 and so many of them have nothing to do with actually protecting individual rights. they're educators, library workers, researchers. they should be cut. we need to be cut. and unions need to take a back seat and actually put this country first for once. >> sequestration threatened some spending and unions say, hey, wait a minute. let's not go to sequestration. you might threaten some of our spending n guess what, mr. trumka is right. this is our country. god bless us. they're asking for more money? did you just see the debt clock, over $16 trillion, eric. this country is in trouble. the money is gone. they're asking for more, but guess what? they've got a president that's w

[laughter] (bleep), by the way, also gets a triple-a rating from standard and poor's. [laughter] [cheers and applause] folks, today they come for the ratings agencies, tomorrow they come for the banks, and that's the last thing our economy needs. a gallup poll found that consumer confidence in banks is already at an all-time low. that includes the 1930's, when bankers lowered confidence by occasionally landing on consumers.
